Hello. I appreciate these aren't postage stamps (there are more images in my album) however they were in amongst a big collection of postage stamps I have been sorting through. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas on what they may have been used for? There is a strip of 5 in total. Thanks Martin

Some sort of Belgian cinderella maybe?

I agree Carmen. Also called poster stamps. Produced as a souvenir of your visit to Ostende. Many sets produced all over Europe. I have seen sets of 20 in 5 different colours! Some folk collect nothing else.

Carmen and Paul, thank you very much for your replies. I've learnt something new this morning which is always nice. Best wishes to you both.

Thanks Paul... that's interesting - out of curiosity, would you be able to post a pic or two of these sets for our edification? Were they used as some sort of "passport", i.e. a sticker you got to show you had been to a certain place as part of a bigger visit or something?

On a side note, since you're the Moderator - I submitted a new profile picture of myself the other day which has not yet been approved - do you have anything to do with that?
